April + Chris: Downtown Sacramento Summer Wedding by Sacramento Wedding Photographer

Posted on: July 22nd, 2014

April and Chris are so perfect for each other, and it was my privilege to be able to shoot their wedding this June in Downtown Sacramento, CA at the Elks Tower Ballroom.  They are so full of joy and have so much love for their family and friends.  April is a fellow actress, and I always enjoy working with theatre people on their wedding days *(we really love the production element, what can I say?).   Here are a few favorites from their wedding day.

Amy Shuman Photography in Spring/Fall Sacramento Bride and Groom Magazine

Posted on: June 30th, 2014

Big news for the next issue of Sacramento Bride and Groom magazine! In my second issue with them, I won the spot as the Fall cover image (with some help from the gorgeous Jaclyn and Mike and their amazing wedding)! This cover is not available in stores until September, but I received an advanced set of copies for my brides. It’s always an honor to be featured in this publication, and special congrats to all the couples who are in this issue. I have flipped through and photographed just the Amy Shuman Photography images for those of you who aren’t local and won’t get this print version.

Cheers to all the couple and all the artists who make these special days and photo shoots possible!

Napa Wedding Proposal by Sacramento Wedding Photographer {Tom and Amanda}

Posted on: June 16th, 2014

Tom and Amanda had been planning their California vacation for months, but little did Amanda know how much more Tom was planning for this trip.  Tom and I spoke over the phone for weeks trying to find just the right location for him to pop the question, and he envisioned proposing at some gorgeous winery in Napa Valley.

When we got to the second stop on their tasting schedule, Domaine Chandon, everything felt right.  The friendly staff, the beautiful views, and the little tucked away areas on the hillside were just what Tom had hoped to find.

 

And so….

And next it was time to call the family!  Tom had asked Amanda’s Dad for his blessing the day before, but her Mom found out over the phone moments after it happened…

Tom and Amanda also joined the wine club at Chandon, and look forward to receiving their club shipments as sweet reminders of their amazing day.

San Francisco engagement by Sacramento wedding photographer: Kristy and Paul

Posted on: February 26th, 2014

Kristy and Paul are so wonderful together! They love to have fun and be silly and you can’t help but see how perfect they are together when you are in their company. They are so warm, kind, and hospitable (even fed my assistant, Kelli, and I cheese and crackers half way through the session!) and a true joy to photograph. I am honored to be shooting their wedding this September in the bay area!

Allison and Brian engagement photos ~ by Davis, CA wedding photographer

Posted on: January 24th, 2014

Allison and Brian met through running. She started a running group on her college campus and he joined… the rest is history! When we were talking about ideas for their shoot they realized they didn’t have any photos of them running together, even though it is a big part of their lives and their story. I was happy to document this perfect day at Sacramento State University. Can’t wait to shoot their wedding in March!

Shawna and Reid engagement by Sacramento wedding photographer

Posted on: December 14th, 2013

Shawna and Reid are engaged! It was such a joy to witness their love and their fun personalities. They are a perfect match! We had so much fun being silly during this engagement shoot on the rooftops above downtown Sacramento, CA. It’s also always a treat to get to work with fellow artists. Shawna is a fim maker/videographer and Reid is a musician. On top of all that, they are both kind, generous and beautiful people. Here are some of my favorites from the sunset shoot.

Jacki + Mike: Orange County Wedding by Sacramento Wedding Photographer

Posted on: November 21st, 2013

Jacki and Mike were married 2 weeks ago in Orange County at the Nixon library.  I had a wonderful time on my little “weekend getaway” down to SoCal.  It was perfect weather and a gorgeous setting!  What’s more is that I got to see Jacki for the first time since we went to college together in San Franciso, and the video team was 4th Wall Productions (owned by another of our college alumni, and my friend, Aaron Leong!).  Oh, and another one of our college classmates was the officiant and emcee: Steve Chun!  The day was filled with love and laughter and it was a privilege to be part of this special day. Here are a few of my favorite images.
